Fundamentals of Thermodynamics – Borgnakke, Sonntag – 7th Edition

Description

Now in its seventh edition, of continues to offer a comprehensive and rigorous treatment of classical thermodynamics, while retaining an engineering perspective. With concise, applications-oriented discussion of topics and self-test problems the text encourages students to monitor their own comprehension. The seventh edition is updated with additional examples, homework problems, and illustrations to increase student understanding.

Borgnakke and ’s of has long stood as the text of choice for an introduction to the theory and application of thermodynamics. Written from an engineer’s point of view, this updated and revised Seventh Edition of the classic text offers a comprehensive and rigorous treatment of classical thermodynamics. With concise, applications-oriented discussion of topics and self-test problems, the text encourages students to monitor their own progress and absorb the concepts step by step.

Updated with additional examples, homework problems, and illustrations to increase student understanding, this new edition:

  • Includes concept check within chapters
  • Provides more figures, additional examples, and application sections in each chapter
  • Includes a revised version of CATT for ease of calculating property data
  • Features the ThermoNet Web Site, with an extensive collection of Internet-based learning resources in engineering at the college level

Preparing students to effectively apply in the practice of engineering, of Thermodynamics, Seventh Edition lays the groundwork for subsequent success in fields such as fluid mechanics, heat transfer, and statistical thermodynamics.

I think, so far the best engineering book i had.With this book people can learn thermodynamics without having an instructor. I never understood what my instructor was saying in class, but thanks to this book i passed the course. Super easy to read and follow. Thank you in advance
